Upper West

LA – Day 4 – time for strings.

We started a little later today and stopped for essential cake pops from Starbucks. If you haven’t tried them, then you must. A little piece of heaven on a stick.

And then it was back to work with the boys. What I didn’t realize was that we are the first people to record in this new studio. It’s so new it doesn’t have a name yet. Owned my Taylor Locke (the guy who provided the whiskey yesterday) from The Roughs and Rooney, it’s a perfect studio for me in it’s dark red antique-y look. I feel right at home. Thanks Taylor! 🙂

Now that I have heard the new songs over and over they sound amazing to me. I keep saying that they are so different to my own production… well… because they are. And I guess it makes me a little nervous when we put them out there that some people won’t like the change. I personally love change so am embracing the new sound and hope others will too.

Keatly (pigFactory) came in today to have a listen and he is stoked which makes me very happy. We discussed what other songs that should go on the album and that decision seems to change on a daily basis. We’ll figure it out eventually.

We ended the day adding cello which was amazing. Cello makes everything sound right! Although Bleu wrote a pretty demanding part which made me marvel at the cellists’s skills.

After that… dinner at at Upper West, my last chance to hang out with Bleu and Joe outside the studio before I go home on Friday. I am having so much fun spending time with them… can I take them home with me?
